Sound engineering is the kind of career suited for a person with a good ear for music. Miles Shaffer, an interdisciplinary studies major, defied the odds by being a part of the recording class without being a music major. It is a fight he won because of his persistence and passion for audio engineering. One thing that sets him apart is the power chair that helps him get around. He was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when he was in the 4th grade. His type of M.D. is limb-girdle which means it affects the hip and shoulder muscles. This doesn’t stop Shaffer from doing what he loves to do. He says it makes him a harder worker.
